Us 3pl Order Fulfilment: E-cigarettes & Vapes
We are looking for 3pl vendors based out of midwest states (such as kentucky, indianapolis, and others) that can provide the order fulfillment of e-cigar and vaping products from the midwest to the rest of the us. Suppliers are required to be iso certified (iso 13485 is most preferable) and compliant with fda, hazmat, and/or epa standards.
Also, we wish to understand if there are any challenges that exist for these 3pl suppliers to engage with the e-cigarette and vaping products manufacturer in the us. If it does, we wish to understand how to mitigate those challenges. Would the pmta (pre-market tobacco application) approval from the fda help in mitigating such challenges.
We are looking to understand the following
1. What are the challenges faced by 3pl order fulfillment vendors when they engage with the e-cigarettes and vaping products manufacturers in the us?
2. How does the pmta approval, iso certifications, or any compliance (such as fda, epa, hazmat, etc.) help in mitigating the engagement risk for the vendors?
3. Which are the 20 key 3pl vendors based out of midwest states (such as kentucky, indianapolis, memphis, etc) that can provide order fulfillment to e-cigarettes and vaping manufacturing clients from the midwest to the rest of the us?
A. Also provide the details on which of these suppliers are iso certified (iso 13845 is most preferred) and which are not
4. Please provide any recent case studies or success stories of fulfillment contracts where the prior to pmta approval, vendors did not agree to engage with the e-cigarette and vaping manufacturers, and they decided to engage with the clients after the pmta approval. Case studies should capture how does the pmta help in improving the perception among the 3pl vendors.
Note: inputs compiled and shared must not be provided from company websites and other secondary sources. We wish to unearth the not so oblivious aspects and hence, hands-on relevant experience is a must for this project.
Kindly drop in a note with your cv/relevant experience in the, if you are interested to proceed.
